Ditto X2: Double time & reverse

Question

If I record in 1/2 speed on the Ditto X2 and then switch over to reverse will my recorded loop play in double time AND in reverse?

Answer

It is a crazy idea but it gives an original sound and indeed, it works.

First select the "1/2 SPEED" option with the "FX" mini toggle switch. Then press the "FX" footswitch and record your loop(s) as you do usually. Once you've finished recording loop(s) press the "FX" footswitch to turn it off. Your loop(s) will then be played at double speed. If you put the "FX" mini toggle switch in "REVERSE" mode and press the "FX" footswitch again, your loop(s) will be played back at double speed AND in reverse mode.

An interesting effect that recalls the good old times of magnetic tapes.
